Live Stadium Captioning

Easily caption your streams, broadcasts, and digital signage

Make all of your sporting events’ live broadcasts, streams, on-demand videos and even your venue more accessible to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community with automatic, totally on-prem live captions. ENCO’s enCaption additionally generates transcripts automatically, helpful for post-game and post-show searching of content.

Are you ready for the next government regulation?

Governments of all sizes continue to add mandates for venues which require any spoken word content be made accessible via caption displays in arenas and stadiums, so deaf and hard-of-hearing people can enjoy the game. Captions not only help fans follow gameplay, they can also ensure the venue is safe for all. But traditional captioning services provided by professional transcribers can be prohibitively expensive, difficult to schedule, and unreliable. And many automated solutions can be inaccurate and difficult to deploy. ENCO’s enCaption is a fully on-prem, cost-effective solution that is simple to deploy and ready to go 24/7.

Automated Accurate Captions with enCaption

ENCO’s software-defined enCaption enables stadiums and arenas to deliver cost-effective, highly accurate, live captions automatically on an as-needed basis both in the venue and online. enCaption can output both open and closed captions for existing video or for streaming, while sending caption text to web browsers accessible from platforms as varied as large-format video displays (“CART”), desktop computer screens, smart devices, and even to public or private websites.

Simple to Deploy

enCaption is incredibly capable: It can embed CEA=607/708 closed captions into your video streams  and/or deliver lower-third open captions onto video you route internally throughout the venue (often  required by local laws), all the while sending caption text data to your scoreboard or LED ribbon system for dedicated caption displays, and saving sidecar and transcript files for later access to all that was said, including via any searchable media asset media management system you may use.

While most sport venues will benefit from a fully on-prem solution (enCaption’s default design), Cloud based workflows can be supported too, as can hybrid on-prem/Cloud designs. enCaption flexes to fit  your unique workflow.

Enagage Your Audience without Sound

80% of people who use captions are not deaf or hard-of-hearing. As your audience consumes content throughout the event, captions are a great way to engage them, especially in a noisy environment where important information can be missed or difficult to hear. Captions can also help those in your audience who may not speak the native language.

Get the Most Out of Your Captions

Leverage all of your legacy recorded videos too, by adding captions via enCaption’s file-based offline mode. This makes your prior recordings accessible as well and makes them more searchable via major online video playout engines and content delivery networks, not to mention again delivering text based sidecar and transcription files.
